Dozens of police, city prosecutors, Town Watch members and local residents mounted bicycles for an hour-long ride through Frankford to promote peace last Saturday.

The 15th Police District Advisory Council and Aria-Jefferson Health presented the ride as part of a second-annual community fair at the healthcare provider’s Frankford hospital campus. The fair itself included information booths staff by city agencies like the Water Department and social service agencies like Turning Points for Children.

Visitors enjoyed free hot dogs, soft pretzels, popcorn and water ice while taking advantage of health screenings. ••
